The powers that be seemed to be setting the stage for a possible fall lockdown or at the very least an imposition of COVID restrictions this fall. Everything coming from the White House, internet bots, the media, and public funded researchers all have the same theme.
It all has the similar build up to when blue states canceled the holidays last year.
First up, conservative internet sleuths noticed a bot campaign on social media all touting the same message.
“This is disgusting, masks and social distancing should be in place till minimum Christmas time at the earliest, the government are clueless, the Delta variant should be taken seriously and we should go into a national lockdown to prevent it spreading.”
Each account below has been discovered to be a bot.
Interesting, isn’t it?
Repeating a crafted narrative that is embedded with a fertile fallacy for the purposes of creating a reflexive feedback loop.
Almost like I have been trying to warn everyone about for 5 years… https://t.co/rPqKUDWqgP

Below is a third campaign discovered all trying to get trend on social media platforms:
Who’s orchestrating the pro-lockdown astroturf campaign? https://t.co/PlAKMcPJwc

Around the same time the bot campaigns were discovered, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said that the administration would support states deciding to reimpose coronavirus restrictions.
Oh, and if the Delta variant doesn’t scare you enough, meet the Lambda variant.
From the New York Post:
Scientists fear that a highly contagious new COVID-19 variant that is ravaging Peru may be resistant to vaccines.
The lambda mutation, or C.37, appears to have emerged in Peru last August — and is being blamed for the country having the highest pandemic death rate in the world.
The concerning strain has since spread to around 30 countries, mostly in Latin America — but also as far as the UK, which has recorded at least eight cases, according to government figures.
There are no known cases of the lambda strain in the US, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The variant has been in existence since last August and we haven’t heard of it once, until now as Biden’s vaccination drive fails. Also note that the report states the variant “may be” resistant to vaccine, not is resistant to the vaccines.
The powers that be are up to something, it’s too early to tell but all signs point to another lockdown or increased COVID restrictions this fall.
